Hello everyone, here’s another podcast! All of your votes have been tallied on to put together the definitive list of the top ten game soundtracks (on Nintendo platforms) from 2014. In this almost two-hour podcast you can expect to hear excerpts from all of the soundtracks that made the list with commentary from myself and those who sent in their thoughts. Thank you to everyone who helped make this feature possible and sorry about the delay.

Unlike last year’s show, it’s now available in video podcast form on Youtube (note: podcast may not contain moving images):

If you want the audio version to stick on your MP3 player or whatever, you can download it here. And if you really want to spoil yourself, the results and and a full track list (with timestamps!) can be found over the break:

It’s that time of year again! Last year’s game music podcast seemed to go over much better than I expected a two-hour show to, so let’s do the same thing for the soundtracks from this year. And once again I’m looking for reader (listener?) input to help put the thing together and narrow down a top 10 list.

The rules are pretty much the same as last year. Vote here to rate each of the twenty shortlisted games and add in any comments if you have them (you can also use that section to tell me if neglected to include certain soundtracks). Since some of them were included in last year’s show, the voting excludes games that were released in other regions last year like Bravely Default, but not ones like Fantasy Life that I previously forgot about. I’ve also excluded any games with an English release confirmed for next year like Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate – save it for the 2015 list! There are a handful of games like Guacamelee on the list that were released on other platforms last year, but as 2014 was their first showing on a Nintendo platform they’re up for voting.

So please get your votes in and look forward to the final podcast whenever it posts. Maybe there’ll be guests or co-hosts this time? Who can say. Since I’ll be out of the country for a while – I’ll probably have left by the time this posts – don’t expect any results until mid-January at the earliest. That’s kind of late for a retrospective, but I’m sure you’re all sick of top-10 lists at the moment. I know I sure am after putting together all that Nintendo DS stuff.

Vote here for the best soundtracks of 2014!

The results are in! Sorry for the wait; I’ve been busy with that whole “taking a holiday” thing, but I’m finally back with the Internet’s latest 2013 retrospective. On this two-hour long podcast I’m counting down the top ten game soundtracks of 2013 (on Nintendo platforms) as voted by Nintendo Everything readers. The colossal playlist of quality tracks is broken up by me reading out your comments and various synonyms for the word “song”. I was testing out a new microphone, so my apologies if you can’t understand a word I’m saying.

You can find the podcast right here!

edit: Seems Google Drive wasn’t too happy about the massive influx of traffic so I’ve also uploaded the podcast here.

If you want to know what soundtrack took the coveted #1 spot you should probably just listen to the podcast, but I’ve included the results over the break anyway.

Hey everyone, it’s Patrick here. I might not be part of the usual podcast crew, but this year I’m trying to put together a podcast showcasing the very best of game music from throughout the year.

While there’s plenty of music from this year that I personally love, I want to know what everyone’s favourite soundtracks are so I’ve put a short poll together. OK, so it’s not really that short, but hopefully people won’t be wondering why their favourite game wasn’t included on the poll. I’ll leave it to you decide what constitutes a game from 2013 – I’ve included some games like Bravely Default on the list, even though it will technically be released three years in a row. Of course, it’s also limited to Nintendo consoles, partly because of the name of the site and partly because no-one wants to edit a 10-hour podcast.

Let your voice heard through this handy dandy voting form and I might just read your comments out on the podcast.

Update: Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll. I’m tabulating the results now so I won’t be counting any new votes. Merry Christmas!
